Things That Must Go

My favorite radio station of all time is X96.  The morning show has a feature called "things that must go."  Here is my list of things that must go:

  • Pinning things that are a number (50 ways to update your walls, 40 crockpot recipes, etc.)
  • Saying "20 past" or "15 to" instead of the actual time 
  • Elf on the shelf
  • Calling a husband "hubby"
  • Duck face photos
  • Hand sanitizer
  • hands together half bow thing when accepting praise or award
  • The song "Hotel California" - it is impossible to dance to and ridiculously long 
  • Flaky people who post stuff on craigslist but never get back to you
  • The musical "Wicked"
  • Saying "cuz" instead of cousin 
  • Saying "GNO" instead of Girls Night Out.  GNO (pronounced by saying each letter) sounds way too close to gyno (as in gynecologist) to use it.  Ever.  
  • Back scratching in sacrament meetings 
  • "Day in the life of" blog posts
  • Scented soap 
  • Almonds

Roxy at Three Months

 Our sweet Roxy on her three month birthday.  Check out those arm rolls!

Here's what she was up to between the two and three month birthdays:

  • Likes to chew on her left hand (only the left)
  • Still likes looking to the left
  • Caught her first cold from Pippa
  • First move
  • Started cloth diapers 
  • Blowing bubbles 
  • Survived another month of Pippa (yes, this is still an accomplishment and probably will be for her whole first year)
  • New nicknames: Blue eyes, squishy, little love, her (real) first initial
  • Still not best nurser - if I wait too long she just cries and gets so upset and won't latch.  She still pops on and off a lot.  Unlike some babies, nursing doesn't solve all her problems.  But you can definitely tell she's getting enough to eat!
  • Hands open a lot more
  • Stands when we hold her under her arms (ie she will lock her legs and put weight on them)
  • Definite friar tuck situation - the hair on the side and direct back of her head has been rubbed off
  • Still fussy
  • Only eats on one side per feeding
  • Started napping (most days) at least a portion of the time of when Pippa takes her only nap - this is HUGE!  I didn't do anything to make them nap at the same time (I had no idea how to do it), but it happened and I LOVE it!  When this happens I usually nap, too! 

Of course big sister had to get in on the photoshoot action.
